Since Utah is heavily associated with Mormanism, a lot of people think there's not much to the community than that. After all, it's the Morman Mecca. Recently, I visited a couple of my friends over in Salt Lake City and was pleasantly surprised to find just how much the city had to offer (regardless of religion)!
When my dear friend Christina N. and I explored the streets of Salt Lake City, I discovered several amazing, not-so-hidden treasures of the city, including gorgeous architecture, art and quaint shops I couldn't help but fawn over.
Come let me take you on a journey with me to the most beautiful corners of Salt Lake....
|The jaw-dropping Cathedral of the Madeleine|
|I saw dozens of beds of colorful tulips, a cold weather plant|
|Angel Moroni playing the trumpet|
All of Salt Lake City has maybe 2-3 Starbucks max! I fell in love with some of Salt Lake City's quaintest little mom & pop coffee shops.
|It seemed as though every corner had a cute, unique coffee or pastry shop to sit, sip and chat! |
|Graffiti art in downtown Salt Lake|
|Behind the wall is a 50 ft. mural of Virgin Mary|
|More nearby graffiti art|
My final highlight was the beautiful Salt Lake Capitol Hill...
|Utah Capitol Hill|
|Inside the Capitol building we ran into an enchanting choir rehersal|
|Gorgeous snow capped mountains|
